BOSTON (CBS) – New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola is active for Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins, but corner Aqib Talib will miss his second straight game with a hip injury.

Talib missed last week’s loss against the Jets with a hip injury he suffered two weeks ago against the New Orleans Saints. Now Devin McCourty and Kyle Arrington will be tasked to contain Miami wide receiver Mike Wallace.

Here is the full list of Patriots’ inactives for Sunday:

WR Josh Boyce

CB Aqib Talib

LB Steve Buaeharnais

DL Tommy Kelly

RB Leon Washington

DL Jake Bequette

OL Chris Baker
